School of Choice Families

The School Choice Program which Easthampton Public Schools (EPS) participates in allows parents the opportunity to have their children attend our schools while residing in a surrounding town. School of Choice applications for the 2024-25 academic year are now available.

The number of School Choice seats per grade will be determined by the administration by May 1, 2024. The selection of non-resident students for admission will be in the form of a random drawing when the number of requests exceeds the number of available spaces. There will be two drawings for this purpose. The first will take place during the last week of the current school year but no later than July 1st. The second will be conducted during the week immediately preceding the opening of the next school year and will be based on the possibility of unexpected additional openings.

Applications received after the lottery will be accepted on a space-available basis. 

Interested families can submit an Application for Admission to Easthampton Public Schools for 2024-25 by submitting the form below. Please complete and return the forms to Ivelisse Lozada at 50 Payson Ave, 2nd Floor. If selected to enroll, families will need to complete the registration packet.
